3-Hour Azores Islands Whale and Dolphin Watching Cruise from Angra do Heroísmo
It’s possible to spot whales and dolphins around the Azores Islands all year round and a marine biologist guide will ensure you maximize your chances. Set sail on a 3-hour cruise from Angra do Heroísmo, enjoy spectacular views of the islands’ beaches and bays, and look out for sperm whales, bottlenose dolphins, Risso’s dolphins, and more.
What to Expect
With 98% sightings of cetaceans (whales and dolphins) during the last seasons, Whale and Dolphin Watching Tours occurs year-round so you can get in touch with the Azorean marine life during all year. After a short briefing provided by a marine biologist, about what you can expect from the tour and safety procedures, our experienced crew welcomes you aboard. The Vigia, land base spotter, will search for these marine mammals and guide the boat to the area. On board will be shared information about the species sighted and other curiosities, because seeing whales and dolphins is just part of the fun, there is a lot of other marine wildlife and amazing landscapes for you to enjoy.

Our company has a sighting guarantee, meaning we guarantee to sight one random cetacean species listed for the Azores. However, we cannot predict what it will be seen, meaning it can be only whales, only dolphins or both in a single tour. If no cetaceans are detected during the trip, customers have another opportunity to come with us on the first available tour. If weather conditions do not allow or customer has not availability to reschedule, the ticket price will be refunded.

They love what they do, and they do it professionally.

One can feel that is not only money driving the staff. They like to share their knowledge and they do their best trying to show you the beauty of the Azores ocean.
